After completing their work, the A&O representatives enjoyed a well-deserved meal together. This extraordinary ambience helps to strengthen and deepen business contacts through personal interaction. But after the tour is before the tour. That is why the A&O representatives already met mid-March for their annual meeting in Bonn to plan the upcoming event tour. The agenda includes specifying the exhibition dates, the further optimisation of the tour, the admission of new guest members for 2016 and the expansion of the organization team, which currently consists of five people.
